Maryland HC Kevin Willard speaks highly of Alabama’s Jahvon Quinerly

Following Maryland’s loss to Alabama, Terrapins head coach Kevin Willard spoke with the media. He was rather quick to point out Alabama guard Jahvon Quinerly’s performance.

“He killed us tonight but I’m really happy for Jahvon Quinerly,” Willard said.

Willard actually recruited Quinerly coming out of high school. The former Seton Hall assistant coach tried his best to pry Quinerly away from an arch-rival in the Villanova Wildcats. However, Quinerly chose to play for the Wildcats instead.

Quinerly put on a show from beyond the arc on Saturday night. He scored 22 points with 12 coming from three-point land. He also dished out two assists and had two steals.

In two games against the Terrapins, Quinerly has scored 36 points. Both of which came during the NCAA Tournament. That is quite the stat line for the New Jersey native.
